MT. EDEN, the Bronx — A dad, hand in hand with his 6-year-old daughter, looked to his left at a Bronx street Sunday and crossed the intersection when a car paused to let them go, but then the driver pulled up and opened fire, striking the man repeatedly.

Anthony Robinson, a 29-year-old Brooklyn man, collapsed to the ground at East 170th Street and Sheridan Avenue. Video shows his daughter run as the car speeds off.
